Dentist surrenders license after investigation

In a letter to the State of Alaska Board of Dental Examiners, Homer’s Dr. David E. Nelson voluntarily surrendered his Alaska license to practice dentistry earlier this month. As of Jan. 22, the board effectively accepted the surrender.
“I am surrendering my license at this time with the understanding that the Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing is conducting investigations alleging incompetence and failure to conform to minimum professional standards and has initiated an administrative proceeding to suspend, revoke or otherwise sanction my Alaska dental license,” Nelson wrote in the letter. “I am surrendering my license at this time in lieu of suspension, revocation or other licensing action.”
With board approval of this decision, Nelson cannot practice dentistry in Alaska. He also stated in his letter that he will not seek reinstatement of his Alaska license.
Nelson also holds a professional dentistry license in the state of Wisconsin.
